How do I login to Skype from other computer?

[ Edited ]

Hi!

 

I've Skype account which was downloaded into different computer. Now, I'm using another computer to login into Skype.. I've tried to login, and I've managed to get thru. However, I have a problem to go thru my Instant message, Video calling, skype to skype calls etc.. It didn't appear on my screen.. I could just opened my accounts setting and details but not the page where I could see my friends online or join the group conversation. And do I need to install Skype everytime I open my account from different computers?

 

Appreciate if you could assist me on this.. Thanks :happy:

Re: How do I login to Skype from other computer?

it sounds to me like all you did on the 'other' computer was to sign in to your Skype account using a browser -- this does not actually allow you to use Skype in any meaningful way

the Skype client must be installed on any computer before you can actually use Skype features

once the Skype client is installed, you only need to sign in with your EXISTING Skype credentials (which are NOT tied to any machine) -- iow, you DO NOT need to create a new account for every machine

Hi Neil,

 

Thanks for d info... but how do I download the skype client without having register again? I have tried to click on the download.. but it went to the same page

"Create an account or sign in It only takes a minute or two - then you’ll be ready to call your friends for free once you've downloaded and installed Skype."

and I need to fill up all my details again in order to download whereas I have opened one.

 

I'm not really an IT savvy, could you please guide me step by step... really appreciate your help!! cheers

try this link for the 'full' installer -- you may find that it works a bit better

I can assure you that it is NOT necessary to create a Skype account to install it

Along these same lines, I have Skype installed on two separate computers, but not all my contacts are showing, nor is my profile pic on both. How do I fix it? Thanks in advance.

I am "signed in" to my account on another computer. This computer already has Skpye downloaded. However, I can't see how to make a call or find my contacts. Please help. The account page is very unhelpful.

What is the version of Skype program installed on your computer? In Skype go to Help -> About Skype.
